    Asthma

    Asthma is a common condition suffered by many people of all ages and backgrounds within the United Kingdom.  Sufferers encounter breathing difficulties because the airways in their lungs become narrowed.  Occasionally asthma can lessen over time, with some children developing it and going on to be “cured” in their adult lives.  In other situations sufferers will have to take medication all of their lives.

    Although the development and onset of asthma can be “just one of those things”, this is not always the case.  If you have developed asthma as a result of an environmental contaminant you could not control, perhaps due to exposure in the work place, then an injury solicitor in St Margaret’s Hope could help you make a claim for compensation.

    Symptoms of asthma include:

    • Shortness of breath
    • Wheezing
    • Coughing
    • A tight feeling or sensation across the chest

    Although the reasons for developing asthma are varied, some of the most common triggers include:

    • Cigarettes and tobacco smoke
    • Dust
    • Pollen
    • Animal hairs (for example cats, dogs and horses)
    • Damp

    Occupational Asthma

    If you have developed asthma in later life it is likely to be down to environmental factors rather than genetically inherited ones.  In many cases it is due to exposure at work, which is why it is regarded as being occupational asthma.

    If you have been diagnosed with asthma recently then you may have developed it as a result of your work, then speak to an injury solicitor in St Margaret’s Hope today about making a claim for compensation.

    Colophony

    Our injury solicitors in St Margaret’s Hope are aware that one of the most common forms of occupational asthma is caused as a result of exposure to a resin called colophony.  This resin is used in the electronics industry as a solder flux.

    If you work in such an industry and are exposed to colophony, your employers should be aware of the risks and should have taken the necessary precautionary steps to try to protect you from harm.  This will include performing risk assessments and providing you with personal protection equipment.
